From the BotCon 2013 dealer room Hasbro product case we have images of the Transformers Platinum Line. These figures included the Transformers: Fall of Cybertron Grimlock vs. Bruticus set that was mentioned at Toy Fair 2013 and a Reissue of the G1 Predacons, both in the line's signature premium packaging. Also on display were the previously released Ultra Magnus, Omega Supreme, and Optimus Prime. Click here to view the full gallery or any of the images found below:

Another Predaking reissue?!? Like there's nothing else they could do.

I'll be passing on them all.

Probably to nip in the bud those 3rd party Predakings being released right now.

Though I never owned the G1 mold, so I might just pick up this reissue...

So they're releasing Predaking ver 2 by Tomy? Good for those who missed the opportunity waaaaaaaaaaaaaay back. :APPLAUSE:

Bruticus is in... SDCC colors?

Wow, what a let-down, was hoping for Generation One colors. Oh well, I'm happy with my normal retail Combaticons.

Reissue of the Generation One Predacons? Interesting, but will probably cost a lot.

The rest are old news. Really want that Omega Supreme to use as Classics Omega.

If they could just price the Predaking close to $100, I'd be all over it. I just don't see myself paying $200ish, as with the most current release. So I'm in favor of this move (especially the nice box art), but only if the price is reasonable.

Considering the Optimus was $80, and Omega $100... doesn't seem like Predaking will be too much more... :DANCE:

I'm wondering if that's the case with Predaking too, just unsold Takara-Tomy stock. :lol: Either way, it's close, if not identical to that release. Nice. :APPLAUSE: Even has that old familiar lean, lol... Seeing as I already have 2010 Predaking though, I won't be needing this one.

Any MSRP on Bruticus/Grimlock? I'd love to have a Bruticus in less crappy colors.

Wish they'd release Omega at retail too.

That Linkin Park Soundwave looks like absolute crap. I could sort of see the appeal if it was all gold chrome, but it's not. It's 90% gross, dull metallic yellow plastic. =;

ULTRA MANGUS! :lol:

If Predaking stays close to the $100.00 range (and I can't imagine it would go much over that), I'll definitely buy. I'm not overly into Predaking, which is one of the reasons why I find no reason to buy any of the 3rd party stuff, but a full on G1 reissue of a rather rare combiner, at an affordable price? Yeah. That's a buy.

I feel cheated for buying the Takara bruticus. :sad: Paid a good $140 or so for that... and then this set comes along...

Hasbro.... :-x

That figures! The first Prime:Beast Hunters figure that I'm actually impressed with and would consider getting and it turns out to be one that's not only more expensive than all the other Prime figures but will likely be impossible for me to get my hands on. I want that Ultra Magnus.

All I want is Ultra Magnus.
